Crisis management is now the norm. Event managers must be adept at preparing for and responding to an array of potential harms. That is pretty obvious by now with the pandemic, but active shooters, climate disasters, and cyber attacks are just some of the additional challenges that event managers will inevitably face. Harvard professor and national and homeland security expert Juliette Kayyem will discuss Event Risk & Crisis Management (ERCM) to provide knowledge and lessons learned for those who oversee or guide operational as well as security and safety efforts. Every event management leader must now know the basics of security management because it is part of business continuity now. This is a shared responsibility for all senior management.
From over 20 years of working in the field as a practitioner, academic, media commentator and private consultant, Kayyem will guide participants through a crisis management framework including assessing risks, buttressing preparedness, learning the skills of crisis communication, and building resiliency. With the pandemic still a part of operational planning, this course will widen the lens to offer valuable tools to guide event management for the years to come, whatever mayhem may arise.
